We might be biased, but we think our sponsors are the best. On behalf of the Parties in the Park Board and the Clayton Chamber of Commerce, we’d like to extend our gratitude to the companies that make this 37-year tradition possible.

Creating inspiring original compositions and hip arrangements of jazz standards/pop covers in a piano trio setting that works well in concert and club type settings. The band brings positive energy and harmonious sounds perfect for all environments jazz/easy listening music is welcomed. Together, the trio utilizes their individual skill sets to effectively create an aesthetic that is reminiscent of classic jazz trios of yesteryear while infusing their own artistic ideas and shedding new sounds into a vintage concept.

Richie leads the band with his timeless voice, groovy piano riffs, and charismatic honest-to-goodness personality. After years of flying solo, Mr. Kihlken chose to seek out a brood of like-minded musicians with extraordinary talent and instrumental expertise and found exactly that in Martha Mehring (vocals), Nate Gilberg (bass), Matt Rowland (guitar), John Lum (drums), Ryan Marquez (organ/keys), and Charlie Cerpa (saxophone). Together they blend blues, jazz, and funk to create modern soul music that brings people to the dance floor.

Jeff Faulkner (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Paul Kriege (keyboards, percussion) formed Two Pedros as an opportunity to perform even more of their favorite tunes, but with acoustic melodies and fluid keys coupled with rock-solid harmonies.
Two Pedros maintain the professional showmanship you have come to expect from Vote 4 Pedro – both on and off the stage.
